Finally got the replacement body in for my damaged hornby, it's a bit more shiny that old one, need ideas on how to shiny up the tender to make it match...

I'd use a polish and then a wax. That should bring up the luster to match.

You might want to think hard about this.......spray with Testor's Glosscoat....don't know if that would work, but you could try it on the damaged body and see how it looks....
